January 18, 2024 | Erin Stewart

Job Summary

The ABA Center on Children and the Law is seeking two full-time Senior Attorneys to work with our Court Projects Team. Each Senior Attorney will engage in legal system reform efforts with child welfare stakeholders throughout the country, including Court Improvement Projects (CIP), agencies, judges, attorneys, federal and state partners, and tribes.

The Senior Attorneys will work primarily on the Capacity Building Center for Courts, a federally funded grant program to support CIPs in designing, developing, and evaluating court reform efforts.  Senior Attorneys may also work on grant development and often have opportunities over time to cultivate a portfolio of their own projects in the child welfare legal field based on individual interest and expertise.

 If you are dedicated to promoting access to justice for children, parents and families, the Center provides an excellent platform to develop national leadership skills. We look forward to learning more about how you could contribute to our mission and our team.
